Penny Arcade Comments On PlayStation Network Hack; Patrick Seybold Gives Update

Jerry Holkins and Mike Krahulik over at Penny Arcade just released a new webcomic commenting on the PlayStation Network situation. In the good all satire style of Penny Arcade, the comic makes fun of Sony’s mishandling of the situation by using Kevin Butler, the marketing character used in Sony’s advertising campaigns played by actor Jerry Lambert. You can take a look at Kevin Butler in action below.


In other news, Sony spokesman Patrick Seybold just released an update that, as per usual, doesn’t actually tell us anything new. Here’s the brief update.

I know you are waiting for additional information on when PlayStation Network and Qriocity services will be online. Unfortunately, I don’t have an update or time frame to share at this point in time.
As we previously noted, this is a time intensive process and we’re working to get them back online quickly. We’ll keep you updated with information as it becomes available. We once again thank you for your patience.

Now that we’re approaching a full week without PlayStation Network services, this has gotten a bit ridiculous How do you all feel about Sony’s handling of the PlayStation Network hack situation?

  • Look Sony is working there a** off tring to resolve this issue and if you cant be a little patient on what needs to be fixed then go by a god Damn XBOX because they sure as hell will not fix the issue if it were to happen to them, as your all aware of Microsoft barely fixed that fucking red ring of DEATH and that was wiht there douchbag bastardized version of playstation3> so first sony has like 70 million accounts and they have to resolve this error on a bunch of pussies that had to attack their servers so yep!

      Your comparing a hardware issue to a software issue though. This affects the entire community as opposed to just individuals.

  • i just hope that they fix it and they dont get hacked like this again. as long as i can still play online afterward sony take as long as you want

    • Daniel Horowitz (HavenDan)

      Agreed, it’s better that they take their time to prevent a similar breach in the future instead of trying to get the network up as soon as possible.

  • Hxr

    De planz wrked

      lol if you say so 😉

  • If you all recall xboxlive was off for like 2 weeks after the release of Halo 3!
    so technically i think we’re doing better!
    Sony is worth is it and go buy an xbox and regret you impatient assholes…

    • Daniel Horowitz (HavenDan)

      Was it, I honestly don’t remember?

  • Its not a big deal with waiting since Playstation network is free unlike the horrible Xbox 360 which charges a ridiculous amount just to play online. Microsoft had times where people were kicked off too and we didnt even know why but atleast this time for sony we do. PS3>Xbox360

  • hahaha that was fun!

    It is just another good example showing how responsible for a large corporation in handling and protecting personal data and information. Sony, you made it!!!!

  • That’s why I always avoid using my credit card online. Even such ‘serious’ companies like Sony and Facebook can get hacked and someone gets access to your bank account data. Some weeks before this has happened my friends were making fun of me using Paysafecard instead of a credit card and now they ask where to did I get it because they don’t want to use credit cards online anymore.
